Funding Databases & Sponsor Websites

This section provides direct access to the funding opportunity databases to which Yale subscribes and those which are available publicly. 

Through major databases such as SPIN and, you can develop a funding profile that can be saved and run in real time.  Profiles are used to generate email alerts of new and updated funding opportunities relevant to your research interests.  You can also save individual opportunities that are of interest to you and generate email alerts, similarly, for new and updated information. 

Explore all of the links for the funding databases listed to determine which of these provide the information most useful to you in your search for research funding.  All of the sites listed provide email alert services.

We’ve also included links to foundations, federal agencies, and charitable organizations to facilitate your funding search.
